Re: fax machine in sending
That would be comming from the scanner. The scan glass is either dirty or the scanner ccd defective. You can clean it well with glass cleaner or alcohol. Try unplugging the fax for abour 10 minutes and try again. And oddly enough I have seen poor connections on the print cartridge cause that. Just remove the cartridge and re install it.
The more likely issue is in the scanner, Either dirt or some bad segments.

The received fax is clean but when you send one out it has a black streak on it. Cool! So far so good. Makes sense because for sending, the fax scans the original document and parts of the scanning area could be dirty and so on. Therefore a black streak may appear. The same black streak would also appear when you make a copy, because the original document must also be scanned. Logical!
However for receiving faxes, the machine uses the internal memory and the print engine only, and the same applies to printing the transaction report, which comes from inside via the print engine. The scanner has no rol in either situation.
Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines on the faxes you receive. Either your machine's primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean your primary corona wire. I recommend placing the drum unit on a drop cloth or large disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner. 1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times. 2. Return the tab and snap it into the Home position, (Caution: If the tab is not at the Home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes). 3. Reinstall the drum unit into the machine. 4. Close the front cover. 5. Plug in the power cord first, and then plug in the telephone cord. or ask the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is with the sending machine. Try receiving from another fax machine. If the problem continues, call Brother Customer Service at: 1-800-284-4329 (in USA) or 1-877-BROTHER (in Canada).
You need to open the front cover of the machine and remove the
cartridge (drum and toner) On the top right there is a tab that you
need to slide from left to right about 20 times, then bring back to
The glass scanner window (narrow strip of glass) needs cleaning. One "spot" of dirt will appear as a streak on the receiving end.
If you "copy" a document you can check the streak and see how effective your cleaning is.
